Edna Reviews – StereogramsAugust 21, 2012
20 long, bitter years Edna has waited to be able to see a magic eye picture mystically swirl into a 3D extravagance.
I recall being a young child and being taunted by my father on a family holiday in Devon.
“Can’t you see the Romulans? It’s amazing! What wrong with you freak? You’re no child of mine.”
Many years passed. Edna grew up… The bitter memories passed and jumbled with other bitterness.
Enda now has a child of her own.
Edna had forgotten the trauma, until this weekend arrived, when the same god forsaken Star Trek magic eye picture was presented.
Incredibly, within seconds the purple blogs did NOT swirl into anything special.
But Edna DID see the magic eye Romulans (20 years wait over)!
And what a sodding let down, why did Edna bother? What was Enda bitter for so long for?
20 years of waiting, amounted to something that would probably have impressed Edna less 20 years previous. What would have been worse? Knowing how shit it was 20 years ago? Or waiting and not knowing?
Frustratingly, her own daughter had no issues seeing it immediately, she was also unimpressed.
Edna will have to find another way to warp her daughter for 20 years.
